Baby Shower Games! Part 1

Hey Neighbors!

First let me tell you right up front, I do not enjoy games at showers.  I am one of those that would rather watch or just avoid them completely.  I tell you this before I say that I won 3 out of the six games at the baby shower.  I still don't like them, but let me tell you about a couple here and then later I will share a couple more.

We started out with a Word Scramble.  All the words had to do with babies and their supplies, birth, etc.  The funniest thing that happened was I was handed the answers first instead of the scrambled words!  Yes, I was honest and turned them over.

We were given a time limit of 2 minutes to unscramble as many words as possible.  Two of the ladies attending tied, so they had to choose a number between 1-10 to decide who actually won the game.

Another game we played was a little harder.  Everyone was given two clothes pins which they attached to their sleeve.  We were no longer able to cross our hands, arms, legs or even our feet.  If someone caught us doing one of them they could take a clothes pin from us.  We also were no longer allowed to say baby.  If someone caught us we had to forfeit a clothes pin.  The person with the most clothes pins at the end won!  I am telling you one woman was really good at this.  She sat with her hands as far apart as possible and watched everyone very closely.  She was the winner!  She had clothes pins all over her sleeve and pocket.

See all her clothes pins!  You might ask what she is doing, but I will reveal that in another post!  Be sure to stop back by for some more fun!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
